Sather's goal is to win a Stanley Cup, so it is highly improbable that Sather is going to give up on the season and trade away an experienced defenseman even if Potter plays well.
If Potter plays well and moves say a Kalinin out of the lineup...how would that be giving up on the season?? Wouldn't improving your D be BETTER in the long haul?
